Robins mulls over future at Oakwell

Have your say

MARK Robins’ future at Barnsley remains uncertain following the club’s announcement on Saturday that he was considering his position as first team manager.

The Star understands that Robins has grown increasingly concerned about the direction the club is taking and is believed to be frustrated with the funds which will be at his disposal next season to strengthen his squad.

“The Barnsley FC board has decided in principle that it supports the Football League in its efforts to require clubs to break-even, subject to the final details of the proposals and sanctions,” it read.

“It is in this context that Mark Robins attended a board meeting to discuss ideas for our club to break-even going forward, particularly in light of reductions to future TV revenue from the 2012/13 season. “These approaches are being followed by most Championship Clubs in the current economic climate.

“Mark Robins’ response to the club’s proposals was that he needed time to consider the implications of the change of approach and whether he could work with it.”
